Summary: 

An imam? But how did he overlook all the Qur’an’s teachings of peace and tolerance that are so blazingly obvious to imams such as Pope Francis?

“French police arrest five, including an imam, in connection with knife attack on Paris police station,” by Henry Samuel, , October 14, 2019 (thanks to ):

French police arrested overnight five people, including a Salafist imam, in connection with Mickael Harpon, the IT expert at Paris police headquarters who killed four colleagues in a knife attack this month.

Police swooped on the individuals in three locations in the northern suburbs of Paris around near the home of Harpon, 45, who was killed at the end of his stabbing spree on October 3.

The murders sparked soul-searching over how a man who converted to Islam 10 years ago and had adopted increasingly radical beliefs escaped detection despite working at a police intelligence unit whose job is to identity terror threats.
